Turkey: The New Ottomans

The third episode of Alan Little's series about Turkey took a more in depth look at Turkey's past & present relationship with Europe. One of the themes that Little was drawing out was that even tho the collapse of the Ottoman Empire was a hundred or so years in the past it was still the precursor for the Bosnian War in the 1990s. The Ottoman Empire had had Islam as the established religion - Christians & Jews were second class citizens.
